Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.64 oz.) contains three cheek colors and nine eyeshadows. The formula on some of the more matte shades was very, very silky and soft, but they kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and often sheered out when blended–more so than some of Tarte’s past palettes. I noticed that some of the darker shades seemed to become more muted just a few minutes after applying, so it felt like I had to really pat and pack on some shades to get definition and depth out of them. I think the colors complement each other well, and I liked that there were some plummy hues thrown in with warmer, more orange-toned shades. I also felt like the cheek colors actually worked with the palette and its different color combinations, so the scheme is very cohesive. The palette is slated to be fully released on June 6th!

Sweet Tea is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish, but there were a few gold sparkles in the product. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky feel in the pan, which was fairly blendable and lasted for eight hours on me. Guerlain #02 (P, $53.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Does This Thing Really Work? is a muted, pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle that sits over a matte base. The sparkle doesn’t bind well with the color itself, so it doesn’t tend to stick well to the skin; the few bits that do migrate and move throughout the day or eventually fall off. The texture was smooth and soft, but it was somewhat powdery and looked a little dry on my normal-to-dry skin. It lasted for eight hours (not the 12-hours promised by the formula, though eight hours is similar to wear I get with most blush formulas). Estee Lauder Rebel Rose (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Petulant (LE, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

Gator Wings is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic, glittery finish. There are large glitter particles in this one, and they show up on the face a lot, but they do not look even, so sometimes they catch the light and look sparkly, while other times they don’t and look more like specks of dirt on the skin. This emphasized my skin’s natural texture quite a bit, so if that’s a deal-breaker, I would recommend using a very light touch and a fan brush, then tapping powder over it to minimize the effect. It wore well for seven and a half hours before turning patchy. Colour Pop A Smile and a Song (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

#SFS is a light-medium, muted, peachy-pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too dusty or too firm. It wore well for seven hours before fading on me. Too Faced Christmas Blend (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Last Sin (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Natural Peaches is a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff, but the consistency was so soft that it was dusty, which led to it sheering out when it was applied to the skin. This would benefit from a primer, as it would give it a better surface to adhere to. It wore well for seven hours. Urban Decay Vibrate (PiP, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Tan-tation (PiP, $5.99) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Millennial (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Biscotti (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

Dogman is a medium-dark red-brown with warm undertones and a dash of fine gold sparkle. The sparkles dust away almost immediately upon application, so I would consider this a matte brown overall. The formula was very smooth and finely-milled, but it kicks up excess product and sheers out on the skin. I noticed that it also faded after a few minutes to more of a muted brown, whereas initially it had more of a warm, burnt orange appearance. After that initial change, the color was good for seven hours. Colour Pop Popular Demand (DC, $4.50) is darker (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Not a Basic Peach #1 (PiP, ) is darker, brighter, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Not For Sale (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Persona Audacious (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar).

Big Baby is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and silky texture that was just a bit powdery but applied well and lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Sassy Bun is a medium copper with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a looser consistency in the pan and was a bit drier to work with, so some of the shimmer seemed to separate from the base color when I blended it out. I think it would be better over a primer or with a slightly dampened brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Viseart Minx #4 (PiP, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Sippy Sippy is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold sparkle over a matte finish. The sparkle separates from the base color, so applied, it looks mostly matte, if not entirely matte. The sparkles were trapped in the brush or fell out when I blended out the color. It had a really soft, silky, and finely-milled feel to the powder itself, but it did sheer out against bare skin. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Choco Cake (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Ithaca (DC, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Haunting is a muted, light-medium mauve with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was dusty and prone to sheering out on the skin. I don’t think this works well without a good primer, and then it should be patted in place but minimal blending should occur or else the shimmer pulls away from the base color. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably. Clarins Silver Pink (05) (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Aglow (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Free Hug (DC, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Lotus (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Orchid #3 (PiP, )(80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Uncommon is a medium taupe-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was excellent, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too soft or too firm. It wore well for eight hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Soleil d'Ambre #3 (Eye Color) (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Divine Rule (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Mancat is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though was not fully opaque, with a very soft, finely-milled texture that didn’t sheer out too much when I worked with it. This shade blended out fairly well and wore for eight hours. Chanel Pulsion (112) (P, $29.50) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Mulberry & Bright (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Ah… I figured this wouldn’t be too amazing… I don’t watch graveyard girl (or much youtube in general unless I can’t find decent swatches of makeup) but congratulations to her on scoring it big! ?

The packaging is so eye-catching! I definitely like it. The shades themselves – though they’re very pretty – don’t feel swampy to me though.

That looks like the same look you posted for the Anastasia Renaissance palette yesterday. It’s even more stunning when I can see your full face!

Oh no, bummer! With summer here, I’ve been experimenting with warmer colors and thought the color choices here were great. And it looks like a very handy palette to grab in the morning to get a complete eye and cheek look. Too bad about the shadow formula–no way is it going to hold up on my oily lids, even with primer. So sad 🙁 BTW, the little magpie in me zeroed in on that Anastasia lipgloss with the gold shimmer , gorgeous!

I think it’s a very pretty palette, and I love the packaging. I don’t need it, but I’d like to have it as a collection piece. Still on the fence.

I really like the looks on you. I think for me the only must have shade is Uncommon though I wouldn’t say no to Mancat or Haunting. Haunting and Free Hug are pretty close though. I wish Tarte had custom palettes.

I like this palette enough that I had to talk myself out of wanting it! Between Stila’s Sending My Love holiday set, Shiseido Camellia palette and Morphe 35P palette, I think I have enough near dupes to cover the looks that could be created with this! I actually had to go and swatch these 3 to persuade myself not to get this lol.

I’m so torn on this palette. I love my Rainforest After Dark because it’s an all-in-one travel palette and this one looks to be the same, but the shadow colors seem so basic and I probably already have dupes for all of them somewhere in my collection.

Oh, that’s good to know! I’d probably be disappointed in this one, then. I guess the UD Gwen Stefani just got bumped up a place on my wishlist, since it will be on sale next week. *^_^* Thanks, Christine.

As much as I totally love this one, I’m afraid I’ll have to skip it until next month. If it’s still around in July, I will nab it. I think so, anyhow? Perhaps I already am swimming in dupes or near dupes, but I love having everything in one cohesive, easy to travel with, type of palette.

So many collaborations lately – hard to keep up! I think this is a decent palette (great for her for scoring the gig!) but I think I might go over with Becca x Jaclyn Hill’s collab as that seems to be more interesting!

The blushes are pretty, but the eye shadows are, well, typical for Tarte – one palette is almost indistinguishable from another. Beautiful eye look Christine and that Good Mood eyeliner really makes it.

On the fence about this palette, including the packaging. On another note, that lip gloss looks gorgeous on you, Christine!

Too bad about the sparkles in Sippy Sippy! It could have been a unique brown shade. I’m going to pick up that Sephora Good Mood eyeliner though! I love how it looks on you with warm eyeshadows so pretty!

Christine, I’ve noticed that eyeshadow pallets have become increasingly warm toned over the past few years. Do you think there is any chance us cool (toned) girls will have our time? I put a sincere effort into finding a good quality cool toned neutral pallet last month and I came up short…

These are my types of shades, but I don’t love Tarte shadows, and the theme/collaboration isn’t my favorite, plus I’ve got plenty of dupes, so this one isn’t a must buy for me.

Omg that Anastasia lip gloss is to die for!!!!!!! Must have it!! Eyelook is gorgeous Christine! I really wanted this palette bc I love Bunny, but boy I wish the shadows weren’t so powdery. Hmmm. Do you think it’s worth it overall?

Thank you, Bonnie! 🙂

I like it, but it’s not super unique to me, so between that and just being so-so on quality, it’s not something I’d go after myself.

ARRR! This palette is driving me nuts! On one hand, I DO NOT need this, not even a little. On the other hand… BUNNY! I remember the night when I first stumbled across one of her videos, I was so fascinated and entertained that I shared it with everyone I knew. I know she’s not everyone’s cup of tea (ha, ha, ha!!!), but I just adore her. Maybe it’s because, when it comes to being goofy and eccentric, my family ranks right up there with the Swamp Queen. 😀

The first time I saw this palette online, I was very excited. The colours look so nice. However, after seeing Allura beauty’s swatch video and reading your review here, I must say I am disappointed. I hope Tarte will up their game as far as the quality of their shadows is concerned.

Ordered this… because I am a hoarder. I love glitter (32 going on 13), so this was a no brainer for me. Although I think makeup launches are getting out of control.

Missed it when Tarte.com had it. I was able to get it from Ulta.com a few minutes ago. Within seconds of it being put on the website, it was sold out. I had put the palette in my bag, clicked “continue shopping”, went to go back for a lipstick and they were gone daddy, gone! I’m a big fan of Bunny’s and I like Tarte’s products so I jumped all over this.

It looks very monotone. I wish there was at least ONE dark dark color for smoking the eye out.
I guess if you are into “day” looks all the time, this palette is fine. The packaging is perfect tho.
